Just keep looking is all I can say. My dh and I didn't agree for months on a name were having a boy any day now and my dh wanted to name him Pystol, or Tuff, he wouldn't let up so I finally just picked one out myself and said ohh please tell me u like this name... Cuz I LOVE it! And he went for it!! Whew!

Quoting ..Kandy.Korn..:

Compromise...use one for the first name and one for the middle.

"the father" is he not in the picture?

My husband and I agreed on all the names for our kids.  We went through THOUSANDS of names and spent months deciding and eventually had a short list of potential names.  We compared the list to the baby we had in our arms and then made a decision.

We both agreed on dds name, but with ds, I saw a name I liked, TOLD dh it is the name we are giving ds and thats the end of it.  I felt very strongly for the  name Spencer and nobody was going to change my mind, ds does have dhs first name as a middle name, which is kind of what dh wanted, but Im sure he really  wanted a Jr.  I told him that will never happen, we are not having 2 people with the same first name, I refuse it.

We didn't agree on a girl name for a long time, but when it came to boys we had several we both really liked. I compromised with her first name and chose her middle.
